There are reports going around that Unai Emery has told Arsenal that there are certain players that he considers as ‘untouchables’ and must not be sold at any price as he intends to build his team around them.
The Daily Mirror reported….
Hector Bellerin has been told he is one of five “untouchables” who Unai Emery wants to keep at all costs.
Arsenal boss Emery has held talks with Bellerin and made it clear that he sees him as a key player and wants to build a midfield and defence to maximize his potential.
Emery also told Arsenal when he arrived that Bellerin is a key player in his plans and outlined him as one of five existing players that they must go all out to keep.
They go on to say that the other four have not been named, but they are guessing that they are Aubameyang (of course!), Lacazette, Xhaka (because of new contract) and Mhkitaryan.
They also give a mention to Aaron Ramsey as Emery is desperate for the Welshman to extend his contract. And does no one rate Ozil any more?
Who would you choose as the five players that are crucial to Arsenal’s development next season?
